Bed rails for seniors are a must-have sleep safety accessory for beds at home. Bed side rails for adults provide support when getting in and out of bed and act as a bed guard rail to prevent accidental falls during the night. Adjustable bed safety rails are designed to fit any size home bed. Home Health Medical carries bed rails for full size beds and larger. For extra bedside comfort and to prevent injury, install bed rail pads for half rails or full-length bed side rails. Bed guards are easy to install between a bed box spring and mattress, even thicker pillow-top mattresses. Drive Medical's home bed assist rail installs with a safety strap and no tools. Most bed rails support individuals who weigh up to 250 lbs. Bariatric bed rails support up to 600 lbs.
The safest home or clinical bed rails and handles are designed with reduced gaps or spring-loaded handles to help prevent user entrapment during sleep and transfers. Deluxe models of bed rails with reduced gaps include extra-wide cross-braces that snap into place with no tools needed.
Other easily-to-install solutions for senior sleep safety are bed handles and bed canes, which offer stability to senior adults and the disabled as they stand up or lie down in bed. Some bed handles come with convenient organizers to keep personal items nearby. A folding bed rail with organizer is a compact and portable option for travel. The height-adjustable, versatile Smart Rail unlocks and pivots for easier transfers.
